Richelieu concurs with St Louis and prefers a course that keeps us out of restricted waters (and out of sight of land) until we approach the target beaches.

Pending a slower mystery ship, we recommend maintaining 24 knots on the approach and boosting to formation flank on the way home.

The round trip is about 1200 NM, give or take. Your speeds will mean the Issac Sweers will have to break off and return to Singapore independently before we reach the beaches. AT 24 knots her range is about 1500 NM, maybe as few as 1000. At full speed she's got 1000 NM at most, probably less.

The Ericcson will just make the round trip, and that's without using "flank speed" for the return.

For the Richelieu, this means seriously degrading the torpedo defense system by burning about 70 to 80% of the fuel aboard to make the trip. The same is true of the cruisers.

I had just volunteered on the previous page, so I guess we will have a OOC election here.

A couple of things;
Kota Bharu is the place we need to bombard, that is south of the border on the Malay side.

To have the sun at our backs, we need to come from the east. Coming from the north would put it in our eyes.
I should have cut that down even more, I will work on a refined course.

This area being British territory, I wanted to know where the airfields were, they built them. after all. I would want the long-range guns of the Richelieu to take those, the 6" guns of the CL to sweep the beaches, and the CAs's 8" guns to take targets in between as indicated by our scout planes.

Far scale, the flat southern tip of Malaya is 50 miles. I think we can be within 25 miles of shore at night w/o being spotted.

600 miles, as the crow flies.
Our approach will be much longer.

And the Diamond is for Daylight air-defense NOT nighttime or surface action. I agree with line-ahead for that sort of thing.

The vice air marshal notices the masts cruising into port. He motions to the sergeant. "Send a launch to bring the captain post haste"

We can sail to a point due East of Kota Bharu and then make a run due West. It would also save a bit of fuel.

The route I suggested would have brought us in from the Northeast. If we have a battleship coming in we will sailing a bit slower and there is a possibility the destroyers can refuel off her. Anyone captaining a Battleship would probably rank everyone but the Captain on the Richelieu.

The Ericsson can only refuel at sea off another US ship. That's due to fittings, as well as to procedure. The French, Russian, and Dutch ships are only capable of limited bow to stern refueling and then, that is a long and very maneuvering restricted procedure they're not really used to doing.

I have not been able to find out who had the best radar among our ships, apparently that info isn't sexy enough for the usual sources.
Got any info on that?
I'm starting to think we don't actually have any in December of 41.

Hms Edinburgh is said to have decent radar with an anti air 279 set, with a 100 mile range, accurate within 3 degrees . The flaw with the system, was that the light cruiser could only engage air or naval targets, not both simultaneously.

Unfortunately, this did not help the Edinburgh historically, since it was sunk by torpedo's.

Richie has the first French ship-borne radar, DEM.

That implies some scarcity as she's cutting edge.

OOC: TAG has the best information overall on it, but the NC now probably has the best overall radar scheme with multiple radars.

Now that everyone is here, things will start to move along. I'm finalizing some things that I had to review and edit due to the ever-changing composition and size of TF Rainbow. But figure a week or so before we start this mission.

North Carolina has actually joined us? Well, that takes care of the Radar issue!


However... our escorts just went from insufficient to and we just can't give up any more BBs to the IJN at this stage of the game.
Should I switch back to a DD?
